Transit Announce Disbandment

image

After ten years of being together, Transit has announced their disbandment. On Monday (Feb. 29), the Massachusetts-based band released a statement to fans advising them of their split. In the letter they write that they have decided to close “this current chapter on Transit” to “direct our energy into other aspects of our lives.” But it doesn’t seem like there is any bad blood between the soon-to-be former band mates. “As for us as individuals, we will always love each other and the records we wrote together,” they write about the impending split.

Before officially calling it a day on the group, they did announce plans to close out the chapter of the band with a couple of final shows. Their final mini tour will find them sticking to the Northeastern part of the United States with show in New York, Philadelphia, Connecticut and of course Massachusetts. Read the band’s full statement below and check out the list of final tour dates after that.

“A letter to all who have shed blood, sweat, and tears with us over the last decade:

After ten years of writing, recording, and living on the road, it is time for us to close this current chapter on Transit, as we have decided to direct our energy into other aspects of our lives.

Since 2006 we’ve been given the incredible opportunity of sharing our music with the world, performing in over 14 different countries, and circling our own countless times.

Through all the ups and downs we have witnessed a side of humanity so caring and sincere that we now see the world in a vivid and magnificent light.

As for us as individuals, we will always love each other and the records we wrote together. We love all of you for lending an ear and losing your voices with us.

We will always be able to say that we had the best fans a band could possibly ask for. When we think about the road we’ll see all the faces and friends fly by in one big warm blur. Your stories and kind words helped push us along more than you may ever know.

April 21st to April 26th we will be performing an array of mixed songs from over the years at our final shows as a band. We have chosen some of our favorite intimate clubs to put this to rest at.

We never expected a few basement show to turn into ten years of traveling the world, playing the songs we love. For that we will always be forever grateful. We love you all and thank you.

Nothing lasts forever.
Goodbye.

Daniel, Joseph, Brandon, PJ, Torre
-Transit”

Transit Guitarist Leaves Band

transit

Fans of Transit were hit with some sad news this past Friday, though some fans aren’t too shock by it. Founding member and guitarist, Tim Landers announced on Facebook that he had left the band that he had been a part of since the beginning. In the post, which was simple and to the point, Lander revealed that he d left the band, but that did not mean it was the end of his musical endeavors.

Lander said that he will be “pursuing other musical outlets” which will include his side projects, Off & On and Misser. Read his statement below.

“It is with a heavy heart that I say this: Transit and I have parted ways.

Support the rest of the guys with their new music and touring. I will be pursuing other musical outlets.

Thanks to anyone that has supported me making music in any way/shape/form over the last decade.

There is so much more to come.”

But today, Landers has taken to Twitter to writ some strange messages to his followers. At first, the posts began with him thanking the fans for being understanding and then change to him admitting that he did contribute to Transit’s new album, Joyride. He writes that he assumes that the tracks he did contribute to would no longer be featured on the new record which is due out on October 21 through Rise Records.

Check out Landers’ tweets below.

It has now been several days since Landers announced his departure from the band, but they have yet to release a statement on their own about it. Transit are so far scheduled to hit the touring circuit in October in support of Joyride. Some tour dates can be seen in the official flyer.
